Christian Church is also known as Disciples of Christ. The disciple was basically evolved from two movements, led by three different ministers in two different states. These movements were sprung up instantaneously in Western Kentucky and Pennsylvania movements that were repercussions against the rigid denominationalism of the early 1800s.images

Restoration of the Church to the practices and ideals of Christianity in the first century A.D. were common goals that brought them together. These goals initially led to the differences and unity that cause the splitting into three restoration groups. A Scottish Presbyterian Son and Father Thomas and Alexander Campbell protested against the assertive sectarianism, and the members of different denominations were kept by them. They have also kept the groups with the same denominations.

In Western Pennsylvania, the Minister of Presbyterian Thomas Campbell was basically frustrated due to the differences that occur among different Christian denominations. In 1809, he proposed to unite all the Christians under the principle of the New testament Church. The son of Thomas; Alexander was also the minister of Presbyterian was also agreed with his father for removing the differences among faith groups.

In order to shed the denominational disagreements they name their breakaway church as Disciple of Christ. The movement was carried through Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia by Campbell. The minister Barton W. Stone felt that he could not follow their doctrines and was separated.

In order to remove the denominational labels, Stone gave the name of “Christians” to the member of Church. Many areas of agreement were shared by two leaders Alexander and Stone. Both of them wanted to get back to the ways of New Testament church by restoring the authority of bible.

The followers of Stone were called as “Stoneites” or “New Lights” while the followers of Campbell were called as “Cambellites” or “Reformers”. In 1832, the two groups were merged and at that time it became the Disciples of Christ or Christian Church. The Disciples want to strictly follow what was written in Bible. In 1906, another breakaway group was formed that was called as Churches of Christ uses an unaccompanied signing or cappella.

In 1926, another split was began and culminated in 1971 after the restructuring of Disciple. Those breakaway congregations were then known as Churches of Christ or Christian Churches or independent Christian Churches because denominationalism was rejected by them. That group thoughtimages that Disciples was moving towards modernism and liberalism so they decided to separate. Too much confusion was occur juts because of the similarity in names. Generally, Disciple of Christ was classified as liberal by Scholars.
